Henry Callahan
Artist’s Statement

My paintings are Expressionist works that reference Nature: earth, sky and oceans. Even more specifically: mountains, deserts, underwater, forests, plains, lakes, the heavens…. our natural world. Nature speaks to, influences and inspires me to create works that reflect how I see the universe interacting with our lives and the environment in which we live. By channeling nature, I act as the medium through which these paintings manifest themselves.

My paintings are Abstract, but more than that, they are extensions of feelings and emotions inspired by their subject matter. Travel has broadened my view of the world and these paintings reflect my love of differing parts of the earth reflected here. The titles speak of specific place and location.

Intense and subtle color combinations are created by multiple layers of transparent and opaque paint which evoke a dialogue between the canvas and viewer. Nature speaks through these works to those who listen and see, beyond Abstraction.

My goal is not only to communicate, but more so to challenge the viewer to see nature in ways not anticipated; when this occurs, I feel that I have succeeded.
